Animal Husbandry Science PhD School

Head : Prof. Dr. Miklós MÉZES, MHA

The Animal Husbandry program deals with the research and development of husbandry and the production of farm and game animals. Since 1989 the animal husbandry sector has undergone many changes. The changes and new challenges affect the rapidly increasing modernization in methods and the public attitude towards animal husbandry and game biology.

Animal husbandry plays significant role in the national economy, especially in the food products of animal origin and the establishment of conditions for competitive export production.

The utilization, recognition of up-to-date molecular biological-biotechnological methods and their use in the work of students is one of the principal objectives of the School. In addition to research topics dealing with the principles of animal husbandry, another important field of the current animal husbandry research is the production of livestock species as well as game biology and management.

Meeting strict animal protection requirements, the reasonable utilization of renewable natural resources and the development of the conditions for sustainable development are all needed for our country as a member state of the European Union. The EU and national R&D programs offer a wide base for the development of applicable R&D topics.

The main topics include

  1. Biology of reproduction and development
  2. Animal biotechnology, molecular genetics in animal husbandry
  3. Animal nutrition, feed toxicology
  4. Animal physiology
  5. Improvement and production of farm ruminants
  6. Improvement and production of hog stocks
  7. Poultry farming
  8. Meat production
  9. Wildlife biology and management
  10. Fish biology and fish farming
